West Bengal to map State highways

To prepare a detailed web-based geographic information system (GIS) mapping of around 4,500 km of highways in West Bengal by March 2014, the State Highway Development Corporation (WBHDC) has involved IIT-Kharagpur, National Informatics Centre (NIC) and Rites. This was disclosed by WBHDC Managing Director Manoj Kumar Agarwal. This will help the State to know the exact situation at the ground level and plan accordingly, he said. The State will soon award contracts for 50-km stretch of roads for four-laning in two parts worth around Rs 560 crore, WBHDC said.
